Kaley Cuoco Q&A: ‘The Big Bang Theory’
Even with all of its recent awards success, one of the most surprising snubs so far for top-rated laffer "The Big Bang Theory" has been with the Screen Actors Guild. Neither the show nor two-time Emmy champ Jim Parsons has even been nominated for a SAG Award.
In a video chat with senior editors Rob Licuria and Chris Beachum, Kaley Cuoco revealed, "First and foremost, I look at our show as an incredible ensemble. I think that would be the highest honor or all, to nab one of those as an ensemble. It's no one-person show, and everyone gives their all."
Cuoco plays Penny, the aspiring actress living across the hall from nerdy scientists Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Sheldon (Parsons). While she has yet to reap any Emmy or Globe recognition, Cuoco just received a People's Choice Award nod this week and will be hosting the ceremony for CBS in January.
The audience is meeting more of the relatives of the show's core characters. Penny's father was played by Keith Carradine last season, but her mother has yet to make an appearance. Cuoco said her "ultimate dream" would be for Lisa Kudrow ("Friends") to play her mom.
